  • Head of School Welcome Letter

    Dear St. Michael’s Families,

    Greetings again to you as we begin. If the first few days are any indication, the 2019-2020 school year is going to be vibrant.
     
    As I have said in other recent communications, I remain honored to serve as Head of School here at St. Michael’s, where blessings abound. We have a highly talented faculty and staff, who were at the ready upon the arrival of your students. As well, we are blessed with strong governance, which is a must-have in the world of Catholic independent schools. Our Board of Trustees consistently works to provide the strategic oversight inherent in its role. As well, the Trustees recognize that a strong partnership with the Head of School serves the school well, and I enthusiastically embrace this partnership.
     
    Christopher Dolce is our Board Chair. In the very near future you will hear directly from him, but in the meantime, please visit the Board page on the website for other information about our Board.
     
    We cannot thank you often enough for choosing St. Michael’s either again or anew for your children I look forward to seeing you Sunday’s Back to School BBQ! 
     
    With all good wishes,

  • Paula Priour awarded NEH grant

    Paula Priour, a faculty member at St. Michael’s for 29 years, has been awarded a Summer Institute grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to attend a workshop titled, Living and Writing Deliberately: The Concord Landscapes and Legacy of Henry Thoreau. She will travel to study Thoreau in his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts.

    One of America's most famous writers, Henry David Thoreau is remembered for his philosophical and naturalist writings and for his most famous work, Walden. He is also known for his beliefs in Transcendentalism and civil disobedience, and he was also a dedicated abolitionist.
    This NEH Summer Institute workshop will focus on how Thoreau’s ideas were shaped by his experiences, observations, reflections, and discoveries in his New England community.

    Priour is thrilled for this extraordinary opportunity to study and engage with colleagues.

    “Thoreau is such a key figure in American literature and philosophy and even political thought, but he's hard to teach to kids whose personal experiences and values are so removed from mid-19th-century contexts, and to whom American Literature's writing might as well be prehistoric cave paintings. Institutes like this can offer experiences that help teachers bridge the gaps between today's realities and those of Thoreau and Emerson. The principles and benefits of living deliberately are as timeless as humanity," she said.

    According to the NEH website, the Summer Institute program encourages teachers to study common texts, visit collections in libraries and museums, exchange ideas about the art of teaching, and share insights and materials with their colleagues and students.

  • Students Attend Weeklong Government Program at UT

    Alex C. '20 and Hunter R. '20 were nominated by St. Michael's teachers and the American Legion, Travis Post 76 to attend Boys State at The University of Texas at Austin.

    The goal of the program is to expose participants to the rights and privileges, duties, and responsibilities of citizenship.

    During the weeklong program, students ran for political positions in a mock government, learned proper flag etiquette, and heard a speech from Texas Senator John Cornyn, among other public officials.

    “Boys State was one of the best experiences of my life. I truly discovered a passion for public service and developed lifelong friendships and memories,” Rogers said.

    Cannata added that Boys State was “an incredible experience” unlike any other.

    “My favorite part of the program was being in the House of Representatives and being able to make, pass, or veto laws and bills. I highly recommend Boys State for anybody that gets nominated,” he said.

    According to a program description on the American Legion website, Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students. It is a “participatory program where each student becomes a part of the operation of his local, county and state government.”

    Boys State has been a program of The American Legion since 1935, when it was organized to counter the fascist-inspired Young Pioneer Camps.

    The American Legion Auxiliary sponsors a similar program for young women called Girls State.
